Tigers Childcare is a company with a strong set of values and a clear purpose. We strive to improve the lives of children and families through the provision of high-quality education and care. We see ourselves as different to other childcare settings in that we provide state of the art environments, alongside qualified, enthusiastic and engaged professionals who are passionate about what they do.

We understand that every child is different and so our approaches need to be flexible and guided by each child’s individual learning style. It is not one fits all at Tigers and we use our innate understanding of child development to treat each child as an individual.

We have built a reputation for a very high level of inspection compliance outcomes, and customer satisfaction. Our focus on best practice and high-quality education and care has led to our company's success. We never lose focus on our core values which guide all decision making and practice.

Tigers is different to other large providers who are often led by anonymous people based in other countries. We are led by somebody who is qualified in early years care and education, passionate about the provision of high-quality early years and school-age childcare and who contributes towards and is committed to sector development. Karen sits on a number of Government boards and steering groups, making sure Tigers Childcare is at the forefront of sector improvement. Karen has been the only childcare provider invited to be a member of the working groups which implemented Phase 1 of the Regulations specific to the school-age childcare sector (February 2018) and the National Quality Guidelines for school-age childcare (September 2020). In 2021 Karen was asked to join the DCEDIY Working Group looking at introducing regulations around training and qualifications for school-age childcare as part of the Workforce Development Plan. Karen is Chairperson of the Fingal County Childcare Committee.

“The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.”

I couldn’t recommend Tigers in St Philips enough. My 5 year old boy is absolutely loving the place. The girls are going above and beyond to keep these little faces smiling all day. I’m very happy I came across them when looking for childcare, 100% recommend.. Huge thank you to Leanne and Leah!

Ethan absolutely loves pre-school and his teachers. He is always excited to go and has made friends. As a full time working Mum I love the introduction of Child Paths. I know he has been safely dropped off and picked up which gives me great peace of mind.

Ryan really enjoys his time at Tigers, he loves doing arts and crafts, doing experiments with the girls and playing with toys with his friends. Triona and Tender are very efficient and friendly. They take great time to play with the children and ensure they have a good time.

Just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks and appreciation to Katelyn in Junior Discovery room. She is the most loved teacher there, not only by Mia but I heard the best reviews from many mums too. She makes this scary step for us parents and our babies so easy when you see the love and care she gives our babies. Mia fell in love with Katelyn from day one and is happy going to creche since. Her face lights up every time she sees Katelyn and it warms my heart leaving Mia in her care every day. Katelyn is such an asset to your team and I will forever be grateful for her as the 1st and such loved Mia’s teacher! She is an example of a carer who truly loves her job and gives it 100%. Every parent is lucky to have Katelyn taking care of their babies! It will be a hard transition to move to a different room and leave Katelyn behind and I can see what lovely bond Katelyn formed with Mia already. I am sure there will be other amazing teachers in Tigers we will get to meet along the way.

Jaydens experience in Tigers Balgriffin so far has been so amazing. Every day he comes home with new skills and it’s great to see him mixing with other children his age. He absolutely loves the staff in his room like Alba, Lucia and Isabel, they are so loving and welcoming to him and greet him with a big hug everyday. The activities they run with the class are so purposeful and are things I would never think to do with my son. They really go above and beyond with the care they give Jayden and the relationship formed with me too. I’m very grateful for all their hard work and effort!

Indie absolutely loves Belgard Tigers and it is a testament to all teachers and management there. I am so happy I chose this creche for my daughter and love getting updates / photos of her baking, coloring and playing throughout the day.

What parents say about Tigers Childcare

We are very happy that we chose to send our son, Max, to Tigers Childcare in Ashbourne. He couldn't be happier, his social skills have really grown and he has made a lot of friends. All the children in the Junior and Senior discoverers rooms are so joyful and they all seem to have a wonderful rapport with each of the staff. A special thank you to Aimee, Ciara, Laura, IIze and Niamh who put so much effort into caring for the children, making their days so much fun, and keeping the center running so well. We never have to worry about Max as they keep us posted throughout the day on child paths and will always engage with the parents on different topics. We also love how Max is constantly doing activities while in creche. Whether it be arts and crafts, playing games, outdoor fun, etc. He is never bored.
